Bullock Tabbed As Conference Player of the Week

(Posted March 28, 2005)

Senior captain David Bullock has earned his first conference honor as he has been named the Commonwealth Conference tennis player of the week.

Huntingdon, PA - Juniata College senior David Bullock (Central Bucks East/Jamison) has been named the Commonwealth Conference men's tennis player of the week for his efforts in helping Juniata to a victory this past week. This is the first conference honor the senior captain has claimed during his career.

Bullock played a critical role in helping Juniata to its first victory of the season as he earned wins in both singles and doubles competition. Competing at the number-three singles position, Bullock rallied from a one-set deficit to claim a 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory. He then joined teammate Brandon Long (Lebanon/Lebanon) to earn an 8-5 victory at number-one doubles. The two victories helped Juniata posted a 5-4 victory over Penn State-Altoona, sending the Lions to their first loss of the season.

A four-year competitor for the men's tennis team, Bullock has gotten off to a fast start in 2005 as he is 2-0 in singles matches in Juniata's first two outings. Those singles wins improved his career singles mark to 12-14 overall. He is 1-1 in doubles action in 2005, which gives him a career record of 11-15 in doubles competition. Bullock has helped Juniata to four conference victories and seven overall victories since the sport was reinstated as a varsity sport at Juniata in his freshman season.

With Bullock providing strong play and veteran leadership, Juniata is off to a 1-1 start in 2005. Juniata will return to action on April 2 with a home conference match against Widener University.
